Multi-quote is something I'd rather not do, as we have a limit to our database size here. It shouldn't ever be a problem (we've not even used 5% of our allowance yet), but I want to keep the size down just in case.
Quick reply I've added to first post as a possibility, I think it can be done you still need to be logged in to do it. I'm still trying to work out how to make gender show beneath avatars (it "should" be doing it already), but as mistercow spotted you can now change it in your profile
Also, it's optional so you don't have to be any of the above.
EDIT: Fixed. And more options added, just in case you're undecided. If you've done it already, and it's not working, try doing it again.
Turns out I
can attach polls if I feel the need
I thought I had to do something to enable that.
